Hey Splinter, welcome to HCF. Nice looking car you have there. Did you install after market lips, skirts and fog lights? Doesn't look quite standard to me!

What else have you planned?

That bike website seems to be down for the time being.

Hi Alec i got the car with them on so im guessing it was put on by the last owner.
As for anythink else planned i really don't know as im new to cars (on got the civic cos i got all honda bikes!!)
I wouldn't mind changing the skirts on the car and putting a aftermarket bumpers and side kit on but thats me thinking at the moment.
But i will turbo it maybe this year or early next year.

Nice car looks clean. Also looks like the previous owner did quite a bit unless they were optional extras.

welcome to the forum m8, nice car btw and the r6 has to be the best bike there. I know a few people who have done the same as you m8 with the honda bikes then honda cars, nothing beats jap cars or bikes in my eyes.

Dunno who does a remap in the south but if you find one let me know cuz i want mine done lol.

Yeah its a 1.5 but it goes well to u put it in 5th!!!
Im new to cars but bikes i know what im doing.
What do u think is best to get the civic Torque up and BHP?

On the r6 i got it jetted and a race can + K&N air filter and that gave me 10bhp more then put a bigger rear sproket on so it would get to its topend faster only cos i couldnt pull past a 55 plate evo that was flat out as fast as i wanted to lol!!
But after the changes it went like a rocket it done 170mph on a dyno with acceleration gearing!
The engine was fucked after 19000 miles of me riding it >:eek:

Where bouts are you? if you dont mind me asking

Bristol m8, should say on the location thingy. Not too sure bout the torque and bhp tho i have been told that i can get a 2.2 prelude engine for around £2100 and get it fitted. With mine to increase performance im jus getting a whole cam bundle from buddyclub as it has all the bits i need and then get it remmaped, maybe chip it in the future. Its already got a dc manifold and full system buddyclub exhaust and induction kit, so putting cams and a remap should do a reasonable job. then i really want to rip out the back seat sand just make it lighter.

Yeah i wasn't saying it was slow just that you mentioned a 1.6 so i wondered what you meant m8. my old pal had a 1.5 lsi or esi (cnt remember) but it was still pretty quick and we got 128mph out of it on the motorway lol. yours is looking good too, wack some rims and an exhaust, maybe lower it and itl be mint, love the splitters and specially the fogs!!!!lol. think its same colour as mine too

Yeah i need some new wheels lol. Exhaust i think so i just dont want it to loud i think the fogs cam standerd as it has the switchs inside? + i need new ones as they are looking really bad they have gone WHITE lol (the fog lights).
Whats the dc manifold and full system buddyclub exhaust and induction kit like? and how much does it cost to get it all?
do u have msn?

yeah must come standard then, fogs arn't in mine(obv on back but not front :( ) if you have £400 spare lol then there are some mint alloys on here m8, go on for sale page. they are black and awesome rims, would get em myslef but its too low to fit 18's.

yeah sounds out of this world buddy, would put up a sound clip but doesnt do it justice.i relly reccomend the buddyclub spec 4 full system if you get an exhaust. quiet at the right times and amazing sounds at the right times.£430 for that.manifold bout £250ish, not too sure bout the induction kit.
Here are some pics of the beast, its on this site but i havn't pu them on the gallery yet, instead its on the suggestion page lol.
